Finding the parking lot entrance for the theater is a bit of a challenge, but the same price as other local parking lots.

Set in the early 1900s, this exquisitely moving story is the vivid account of a young orphan girl as she blossoms into a beautiful, intelligent and vivacious woman. A trustee of the John Grier Orphanage offers a proper education to the 18-year-old Jerusha. The benefactor’s only requirements are that Jerusha never know his identity, and that she write him monthly (though he will not respond). She sees him once in the shadows and invents a nickname for her mysterious patron – Daddy Long Legs. Her letters to him paint a moving portrait of her lonely life in the orphanage, and the blossoming of her mind and spirit as a college student.
